Mug Swap 2013

I love swaps!  I've done a few that I have found online over the last couple of years but it has been a long time.  So this year when my cousin posted about A Cuppa Kim's Mug Swap I knew I had to sign up!  I am SO glad I did!  It was so much fun to put the package together for my mug swap partner and I waited on pins and needles for my happy mail to come!  And I was not disappointed!  Jennifer (@jen_beautyinbloom) did an amazing job putting my mug package together.

 I loved everything about it!  From the pretty yellow polka dot mug, the flower coaster made by Jennifer and the adorable camera pendant by Life Through This Lens (check out her Etsy shop here!).  Thank you so much Jennifer for your thoughtful gift! I hope that my swap partner loves her gifts as much as I loved mine!

I can't wait to participate in the next swap!

Flirty Apron Swap

So I participated in the Flirty Apron Swap this last time around. The theme was Your Dream Vacation. My dream was somewhere tropical. My partner's was Ireland (which I love and really, really, hope to go back and visit again someday.

I sat down to start sewing the apron for my partner and my gosh darn sewing machine broke. And because I am, of course, a procrastinator I only had one week to jump on Etsy and find something suitable, get it and mail it out! Here's what I sent:

The cutest little apron

Irish magnets

Pin for the apron

My favorite Irish tea, the candy bar I had when in Ireland and some yummy steak sauce. I also sent her a menu for an entire day of Irish eating.
And here is what I got! I LOVE these colors. Sunshine and summertime. That's what it reminds me of!

Box full of goodies!

Fudge, taffy, and some taffy chews

I love this apron! And I really love the towel loop! Thanks Beverly!
